Courtney Love Lost $27 Million

The 2014 Cannes Lions - Press Conference

Hole rocker, Courtney Love, has made it clear that she lost a shocking $27 million (mostly due to lawsuits), but that’s ‘rock ’n’ roll.’  She recently admitted to Style magazine:

‘I lost about $27 million – I know that’s a lifetime of money to most people, but I’m a big girl, it’s rock ‘n’ roll, it’s Nirvana money, I had to let it go.’

Well… that’s maybe more than a lifetime of money to most people- but let’s not nitpick.

Love went on to say that she makes more than enough money to stay in the black- so she focuses on that.  A great deal of that large sum of lost money, was from Nirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain’s, estate.  Love was married to Cobain when he committed suicide in 1994.  The two had one child together, Frances Bean Cobain.

Love and her daughter, Frances, will both be involved in the casting and production process of a biopic being produced about Kurt Cobain – as will Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, fellow Nirvana members.  Love revealed that the lead role has yet to be cast.

“CAA (Creative Artists Agency) directly sent me actors’ (demo) reels.  That was really tough because these boys are so pretty, so cute. I won’t name names because I don’t want to jinx it for anyone but these are 25-year-olds who are blond, gorgeous and the new Brad Pitts. There’s a ton of those. Some are really good actors, not just pretty faces.”

Any guesses on who will land the role?

Courtney Love is Heading to the Small Screen!

The 2014 Cannes Lions - Press Conference

Hole rocker, Courtney Love will be visiting the small screen this Fall on FX’s Sons of Anarchy playing a pre-school teacher of all things.  While Love has appeared in films, even earning a Golden Globe nomination for her role in The People vs. Larry Flynt, this will be her first time on television.

The rocker will join the show for a multi-episode arc as Ms. Harrison—the pre-school teacher of Jax’s (Charlie Hunnam) eldest son Abel.

Her character plays a pivotal role as she takes a special interest in Abel, which will most likely catch the attention of Abel’s mother, series regular Drea de Matteo.

Love won’t be the only famous cameo in this final season of the hit drama.  Marilyn Manson will be playing the role of a white supremacist in a multiple episode arc.

Fans of Love’s music don’t have to worry that she’s quitting the business to become a full-time thespian however.  She recently hinted at a duet with none other than Miley Cyrus.  So I guess we have that to look forward to.

Frances Bean Cobain Offered “Bella” Role in Twilight

Courtney Love is saying lots of crazy stuff, I feel like Amanda Bynes should be her daughter, not Frances Bean Cobain!

The Hole singer said on Thursday’s The Howard Stern Show that Frances was one of the top choices for the star-making role Kristen Stewart eventually won..Bella in Twilight.  “When she was 13 she was offered Twilight. She was offered Bella in Twilight,” Love ranted.

Here’s more from GossipCop:

Love told Howard Stern that, “That’s a true story,” saying her daughter didn’t even audition for the part, but “someone just saw a picture of her in a magazine and sent me the script.”

However, the singer says Cobain immediately rejected the purported offer, allegedly telling her mom, “That’s a sexist Mormon piece of sh*t. It would have destroyed her life,” said Love. ANYONE buying this? There are two problems with this story. 1, why would anyone send LOVE a script? I’m sure there are more responsible Frances Bean Cobain handlers that would have probably received the thing.  Second, COURTNEY LOVE SAYING SOMETHING IS GOING TO RUIN YOUR LIFE is kind of like a fish calling water wet.

That’s an expression, right?
